Max Verstappen has highlighted a "temperamental" problem that could impact the Dutch Grand Prix.

The two-time World Champion heads into the weekend having won the last eight races in a row, with him set to equal Sebastian Vettel's Red Bull record of nine in a row from the 2013 season.

The race has already been threatened by a protest among local taxi drivers, who could be blocked from accessing the circuit over the weekend without a proper permit.

But he warned that weather could play a factor in the weekend, as it has done in the last five Formula 1 races.

"Zandvoort is an amazing track and of course, the fans are incredible there," said Verstappen.

"The summer break was really good, I had a decent amount of time relaxing with friends. I'm excited to get going with the second half of the season now and what better way to start than in the Netherlands.

"It's an amazing track and of course, the fans are incredible there, so I'm definitely excited to get back on track.

"It looks like the weather could be temperamental there but I don't mind either way, wet or dry, we'll do our best to make sure we score maximum points."
